Oh my goodness, what a Friday this has been! Even from this morning, it’s just been go and go and go.
It started off with the food delivery, sometimes my partner and I get “lazy” and order our groceries to be delivered. Well, we got everything we bought, not even a single substitution. However, we got 10 cans of dog food, special clothes washing powers for sensitive skin (which might actually work well for me), and fancy toilet paper. When I rang to tell them about it, because of COVID we can’t even take it back to the store.
Then when I dealt with that, I got a call from my Mum. It’s a working day for her, I never get a call from my mum on a working day. My heart went instantly into my mouth. Turns out, it’s all fine, she was just nervous, because she’s looking at a home for my Gran, without my Aunt, because it is also a working day for my Aunt.
THEN, you might notice. I am not writing a post about my new working website. That is all sorted now, HOWEVER, after the call from my Mum. I think got a call from my job provider about a job, I had applied for and how the people want to see me. Now when I applied for the job (and it does really interesting. Digitising History), it said “casual”. When I went a talked to my provider, they said it’s likely going to be full time. That isn’t casual…at all! The interview is next week, so I will ask about that…But, if I get it and it is full time…
THEN…! The NSW Premier (Sydney’s state leader) had a important announcement. She’s resigning! For a second, I was relieved, she is SUCH a snob, and such a Federal Government lackey. She is the reason that NSW is in the state it is now in, she’s one of those “leaders” that chose to ignore health and medical advice. Honestly, I don’t think she’s thought about the Hospitals or ICU’s in NSW once.
This is the big news though. She is not resigning over COVID.
I am all for Women’s Rights, but I’ve noticed something over the last couple of years.
What is it with grown women lately, causing harm and spreading misinformation, just to turn around and play “victim”?
I know I go on a lot about Rowling a lot, but she isn’t the only women doing those sorts of things.
We have a female journalist here in Australia, who is clearly biased towards one particular political party, at the tax payers expense. Most of the time she’s called out on it, she just blocks those people. Then turns around on our taxpayer national news front to say how much she’s being “bullied” on Twitter. She calls it misogny (which it isn’t) but she also fails to mention that the male journalists are being called out on it too.
This is becoming a re-occurring theme with women. Women who are being really horrible, and obviously bias. Want to them turn around and play “victim”.
There’s always been women like this, but it seems to be really bad in the last year or so.
Here is Australia, NSW (so Sydney) had a massive (for Australia) explosion of COVID cases, recently. Just a couple of weeks after our completely bias PM said that NSW was the gold standard. Now, not only for the last couple of months NSW has been doing the worst (lol). But then their state “leader” Gladys Berejiklian, has said she’s not doing any more daily pressers…what’s the point. The next day…
Starting to see why Sydney is never in the top lists of any livable cities.
There are GOOD politicians, unfortunately, the ones with any common sense ie the one who LISTEN, seem to be not listened too, except by their own people. Like Merkel and Ardern. Which is probably why they do well. Funny that, isn’t that? Politicians to actually listen, rather than do what they want too, do well. The ones who are not in it for the money, and are in it for the people, do well, lol.
I’m going to make a spreadsheet or graph or something, about politicians who listen and those who don’t.
I always find it funny when someone says to be “Who you like clearly shows your bias” or something like “Your bias” is showing … Because it’s kind of like … Well, yeah…So are yours, mate, lol
Again, why do people think this is a insult, or some fault in you? Like, if you’re going to “come at me” and tell me what a “bad person” I am for liking someone you don’t like, doesn’t it just make sense that your bias is showing for the person you prefer? If you do come at someone, come at someone with more than just “your bias” is showing. Because so will yours.
I don’t like:
Trump (all the Trump family really)
I totally have a “bias” against them, and with good reason. It’s not like it’s not justified. Just like I am sure in people’s head who do like them, think…in their fantasy world…That they’re good people. I don’t think so, and I’ve got the facts to back it up.
Is anyone perfect? God no…No matter what Trump and his family think of themselves.
Are groups of people, perfect? Oh my good golly gosh no.
Politicians are definitely the worst of that group as well. It’s just knowing which politicians actually seem to care about the people, just that bit more.
Trump (all the Trump family really)
Like, quiet literally all three of them in one way or another have said that they’d prefer the people to die, as long as businesses stayed open. Trump literally said that he doesn’t care, and Johnson literally said to let the bodies pile high. Morrison would never actually say anything like that, but he has heavily praised NSW over all states, who are now doing the worst throughout COVID. Throughout this whole COVID debacle, Morrison and our Federal Government have attacked (like Trump) any state leader who is a opposition Government state leader. Basically our Federal Government (who Peter Dutton actually caused our first outbreak of COVID in Australia) have continually attacked Victoria, Western Australia and Queensland, whose states leaders are in the opposition party…Coincidence, huh.
The PEOPLE of Victoria have continually asked our Federal Government to stop with it…They haven’t. My brother lives in Victoria, the majority of Victorians adore their state leader, Dan Andrews.
So, am I bias against them…Absolutely.
Take though Biden, I liked the guy. However his response to the airport bombing’s and the “evacuation” was REALLY stupid. However, Trump, Morrison and Johnson have never really given me a reason to like them. One time Trump passed a Law to stop dog fighting, however, it’s like one thing doesn’t necessarily make up for a thousand crappy things.
So I had a funny comment the other day, and it made me really laugh, with them saying at the end “You probably wont publish this, but I’m aiming it at you”
Why wouldn’t I publish proof of cult thinking Australia? Proving my points? Haha…Long Post incoming…I will also just say that I don’t write a lot about Australian politics, mainly because most of my readers, are from overseas. So, for myself, I don’t think my readers would have much interest. Also from 6pm last night, my state has gone into a week long lockdown.
So I’m going to write about a few points of why our current Prime Minister has the nicknames Scummo and Slomo.
1* Now, when the vaccines first came out. Scott Morrison said that we were right near the front of the queue to get the vaccines. Turns out, that wasn’t true. Not even close, not even half, lol. There has been such anger about it, because not even our first line responders are covered yet. And considering that our aged sector (which is a Federal Government responsibility) was hit really hard during COVID, you’d think there’d be more vaccinee rollouts … Nope …
Major Australian aged care provider reveals just 15% of staff vaccinated as sector demands changes to rollout – The Guardian, Christopher Knaus: Thu 8th July, 2021.
In fact, if you read that article, there is a little bit about the Private Schools getting the vaccines over aged care facilities. Mainly in NSW.
“On the first part, despite assertions last year by the prime minister Scott Morrison that we were “front of the queue”, we have lagged well behind other nations. Most European countries began vaccinations just after Christmas, and the UK and US got going a bit earlier. Australia’s rollout only began on 22 February. “
And in fact, a previous Prime Minister of Australia, has done more to help with vacciness.
2. Now you might recognize the name Kevin Rudd…He’s our former PM, who ended up creating the biggest online signed petition in Australia’s History. The petition? Seeking a royal commission into Murdoch media. Which gained over 500,000 signatures.
3. One of the biggest reasons that Scott Morrison is called “SloMo” has not only got to do with the VERY slow rollout of the vaccines, which probably would have helped NSW, and in turn, the rest of Australia. Our Prime Minister has a tendency to “run away” when major things happen. When, as his first term as PM, we had a major bush fire, he took off to Hawaii. When Australian’s weren’t allowed to travel, he was travelling to interstate and international sports events.
4. One of the things that I found funny about this comment, was when I was told Scott Morrisons religions was his own personal business. Which is correct, except that Scummo KEEPS making HIS Religion part of his “leadership”.
“On Friday, March 13, the Prime Minister announced a ban on gatherings of 500 people, however the ban would not actually start until Monday. No reason was explicitly given for the delay between the announcement and the commencement of the ban, but Hillsong’s Colour Conference in Sydney’s North East was attended by over 3000 people on Saturday, March14th. As the crisis has continued to escalate the government has been forced to take stricter measures in regards to lockdowns. The NSW Police have been granted extra powers to enforce a mandatory lockdown where people can no longer leave the house for non-essential reasons. These restrictions are set to be lifted on July 1, which is conveniently one week before Hillsong’s next scheduled mega conference to be held at Qudos Bank Arena over 4 days. [Personal note: The conference is ironically titled ‘Breathe Again’ whilst we’re in the middle of an epidemic that attacks the respiratory system.]”Hillsong Gets Away Scott Free – Elle Black: Medium
But there’s even better news for the Prime Minister if his tax cut package gets the Senate’s approval.
Mr Morrison stands to double his money and secure an $11,000-a-year tax cut in 2024 if he’s still in the top job.
The independent remuneration tribunal announced a 2 per cent increase to all MPs’ pay on Thursday.
The Prime Minister has secured three pay rises in just a year, taking his annual salary to $549,229 annually.
Note* Over the past decade, there usually has been 60 to 70 sitting days in non-election years, dropping to around 50sitting days in election years. However, 2019 will earn the dubious distinction of having the lowest number of sitting days in that period, with 35 of its 45 sitting days occurring after the May election. Again … The Prime Minister has secured three pay rises in just a year, taking his annual salary to $549,229 annually.

7. I can’t even begin to explain to you all how badly the Prime Minister and Federal Government have attacked the Victorian People. Compared to NSW. Now NSW pretty much got the whole ball rolling with COVID in Australia, re the Ruby Princess. Including Federal Minister Spud Head Peter Dutton. Our current PM kept calling NSW the “Gold Star Standard” for COVID … Due to the slow response from the NSW state leader … and now this ….
I can’t begin to stress, Australia did well (not so much NSW) because of our state leaders and the Australian people. Not because of our Prime Minister, or our Federal Government. They made the Australian people’s (especially Victorians) mental health worse, NOT better. We survived this (not so much NSW), because of US. Like, the Australian people have to survive this current Prime Ministers “term”. We did it, because of AUSTRALIANS. … Somehow, lol
Not once, has the Federal Government ever apologised for it’s failures resulting in deaths (COVID Aged Care deaths and Robodebt Suicides). They’ve never actually apologised for anything, when it comes down to it. Are they trying to tell us that they are perfect and never do anything wrong?
So, dear A Wondering Minstrel I am not only going to reply to you (which I did) but I am also going to publish your comment, on here as well. So everyone can see it…Happy =D What exactly are you doing?
As for Dan Andrews “lying”, he didn’t lie. He didn’t know. That’s not the same thing.
On Monday Mr Eccles was asked if he had passed it on to Mr Andrews. “I’m not saying that I didn’t. I’m saying that I’m not aware that I did or I didn’t,” he said.
At LEAST Dan Andrews can acknowledge problems, but also APOLIGISE‘S for them. You need to be able to prove that he knew, it’s no good saying he was given message’s THROUGH other people. As that means he was lying. Did Andrews reply to anyone?
Do you even care about what actually started COVID in Australia? Don’t you *think* that should be looked into as well? It’s “funny” how you’re all “Dan Andrews lied once”, but just ignore the Federals Government not only lack of responsibility for ANYTHING, but not apoligise and no inquiries either, the lying. Is that because Morrison will just run away again?
When you honestly look at that list, do you actually think Andrews “lying” is really the worst that anyone in our current Government is doing? Too even get into as well: Robodebt Ruby Princess. Sports Rort Christian Porter Brittany Higgins
As well as the disrespect that Morrison has to shown to WOMEN in Parliament. Honestly, I could keep writing all week with what Morrison does.
Like, really…I can tell that you don’t know what you’re doing. I have no idea what you even mean by “racism” I suspect that’s just a buzzword you like to throw out, lol
In short, if you don’t want to be embarrassed with your own stupidity. Don’t challenge me to not post your comments, Murdoch Sheeps…I totally will, and I will embarrassed you with the facts.
So most of us during 2020, were telling America to VOTE, VOTE AND VOTE … Now it’s our turn Australia and the UK! Just like Trump, neither Johnson or Morrison will quit. There’s just too much good stuff in it for them. However, in the mean time. Be Aware of anything local, town, state. Anything smaller, because it still makes a difference.
Years ago, I went to America several times. During my times I found the one flavour from Ben and Jerry’s that I will love forever. Unfortunately, when I stopped visiting America, we didn’t have Ben and Jerry’s here in Australia…Now we do! Even though we started to get in Ben and Jerry’s into Australia, we still didn’t have my favourite flavour … Until now!
We’re just in the middle of Winter though now. I figure, I have waited literally months for this. I can wait a few more months.
But now, for something more serious…
Hey America! What’s going on?
I think like a lot of us, we didn’t expect miracles overnight. However, I am sure, like a lot of Americans. We’re all here wondering how the Republicans didn’t listen to the people, when they voted Trump out?
I’m still in shock that McConnell is there. I thought to myself, if Trump doesn’t go, as long as McConnell goes. Then that’s what really matters. There would only be so much Trump could with a Democrat, or even Republican that doesn’t kiss his butt.
So America is having a normal one, I see. First the segregation with trans people and then the “Heart Beat Bill” signed in by a hella lot of men and about 3 possibly fertile women.
I follow Good Law Projects on Twitter. They are currently trying to hold the UK Government to account when it comes to their COVID response, specifically looking at how much the Johnson Government lied. Australia isn’t doing any better.
But get rid of the lot of them, start over. Nothing like a new beginning. Have politicians always been this bad? Or is this just a new trend? I’ve always felt like, there’s always been at least one or two horrible politicians, but lately it’s like a bad bunch of dozens of burnt cupcakes.
Recently the new head of the EHRC in the UK ( Equalities and Human Rights) came out with a whopper. That gender critical women should be allowed to question and mis-gender trans people with no repercussions. Which of course, is horribly wrong.
I hear so much about Trump and Boris Johnson, I’m gonna talk about our current “part-time” Prime Minister Scott Morrison. I thought I’d give a little description of who we have in “charge”. Although you probably think he’s not as bad as Trump, he is. It’s just that in Australia, we’re not so much “Individual Freedom”. We’re more “Freedom for All”.
The first big one, although, there are several big ones. Is he’s decision to not only ban Australians from coming from India to Australia, but if they come back they can be jailed or fined…or both! A lot of “Human Rights” organisation are calling the move illegal, which I can’t see how no one could see it as anything else? Our PM and a lot of “leaders” in the Government are VERY against immigration. Every time time around election time, there’s suddenly a influx of “dangerous” immigrants.
Too go on from there, Morrison promised to have ALL Australians home by Christmas, it’s May, and not only has he not kept that promise, but now he’s literally banning Australians from returning.
Then again, when it comes to our Federal Government and Immigration, this isn’t really that shocking. Home to Bilo
It’s also election year, next year, so Peter Dutton (or mister evil potato head) is now making sure he whips the Far Right into a Immigration Fear frenzy…Sound like anyone you all know?
Scott Morrison and his “Faith” are hugely unpopular with the majority of middle class and kind people. Morrison attends Hillsong…Nuff said really, lol. I’m going to post a few links, just from the last month alone.
Like many male leaders, Scott Morrison handled it VERY badly. He has been really attacking the Melbourne or Victoria Premier Dan Andrews. Probably something to do with the fact that everyone likes Andrews, and he was fundamental of getting his city out of a lot of strife. Dan Andrews is just a nice guy, and part of Labor, whereas Morrison is Liberal.
However, apart from that Aged Care is a Federal Government charge operation in Australia. Which ever Government is in charge at the time (so Morrisons Government) they are to take care of the Aged Care. Which in Australia, was the worst hit section during COVID. Not only does Morrison take no responsibility and did nothing to help (other than to try and divide Australians by trying to lay it all at Dan Andrews feet) He has no problem taking credit for Australia doing as well, even though he did little to help. He really spent a lot of time trying to divide us.
The only good thing that our Federal Government did was to give out extra “Welfare” or “Social Services”, but even that they stuffed up. I think in the end when they start to decrease it again, it was discovered that they could have given more than half of what they originally were giving out.
Like many leaders, when it comes to the vaccinations his stuffed that up too.
At the beginning of last year, Australia was hit with one of it’s worse bush fires Australia has seen in a while. Our “part-time” Prime Minister ran off to Hawaii. He kept claiming “Well, he couldn’t hold a hose”. Not the point really.
He has routinely attacked people on welfare “social services” Yet, what he claims to be lazy, is actually what he has been doing. When he first became PM, he gave himself a pay rise in the first few months. Out of the 6 months into his first election, he had only worked a total of 10 days. By his own standards, he called himself lazy and most definitely should not have given himself a pay raise.
Last year Bettina Ardnt won “Australian of the Year – For helping with men’s community service”. In other words, she was a rapist apologist. Despite the backlash, the Government and the Governor General didn’t look into it and ignored the mjaoirty of Australians. This year a sexual assaults victim won Australian of the Year, overall. So, of course, the Government, despite the outrage are looking into if she qualifies -.- Grace Tame is the ONLY reason why Australians thought there was some esteem in the “Australian of the Year” Awards … Think OBE’s, Lords and Ladies.
I could go on, but I don’t want to depress you. The GOOD thing is, is that thanks to the STATE LEADERS, even the ones I don’t like, Australia has done really well with COVID.
Thanks to States like Victoria and Queensland, they have BANNED conversion therapy.
I don’t know how, but somehow in Australia, it might even be to do with the distance. But, we are doing reasonably well. I was even surprised that QLD banned conversion therapy, because I would say that QLD have a lot of Ted Cruz’s and Gavin Williamson. Very bad people, but even they are starting to lose their grip of their seats. Problem is, people keep on voting back Mr Evil Potato Head.
I guess it’s like Trump and Johnson, when you actually start to list everything they’ve done to harm people and their countries. You realise just how bad they really are. Take for example, Brittany Higgins. The “grown up” who was in charge of looking after Brittany, not only didn’t do anything for Brittany, but called her a “lying cow” Is now Australia’s Minister for Women. She is also a Liberal (Morrisons Government). Also, like Trump and Johnson, Morrison also puts inappropriate friends in top positions.
Course Karl is upset about the Cricket. The guy’s big “expose” on Meghan Markle was an interview with Katie Hopkins, the UKs BIGGEST racist. #AustraliaDay I stand with #CricketAustralia and their decision to wear #IndigenousAustralia Jerseys. That IS Australian.
And if you think Sports has never been political…Are you in for a shock. Course Sports is political.
Why so many White Australians have a problem with moving a public holiday to another day, that doesn’t represent colonization. It’s just weird to me, why this is such a big deal. Why is it SUCH hard work to change a day, that doesn’t represent us NOW, to another day that would represent us NOW.
Any “Australian” that wants to kills off Koala’s to make money. Doesn’t have a single leg to stand on when talking about “What’s Australian” #KoalaKiller *cough* John Barilaro MP *cough*
If we, Australians, see these hypocritical comments for stupid elite leaders, and can’t see WHY we need to change the date from these comments alone. I don’t know what else to tell you.
By the way, I just found out that the “Australians of the Year” nominee’s were a majority, are of the Christian Faith -.- However, I am happy with who won “Australian of the Year”.
